Fallout 4 GOTY Edition: More Signs Point To Switch Release!

Fortnite quietly enables PS4 and Xbox One cross-platform play – report

Xbox Live is the only network that allows spaces in gamertags. So starting two days ago, when Fortnite players on PS4 reported encountering Xbox One players in-game, it came as quite a shock. Thus, when PS4 players noticed random opponents in their matches with handles that included spaces, they knew something odd was going on.

Oops, it looks like for a brief few hours PS4 and Xbox One cross-play was available in Fortnite.

With cross-platform play between the two consoles being so easy to implement that a developer manages to enable it it accidentally, hopefully, Microsoft and Sony will manage to negotiate a way for the feature to come to fruition in an official manner. How were people able to differentiate between an Xbox gamertag and a PSN name?

Back at E3, Eurogamer interviewed both Microsoft and Sony about cross-network play, following the announcement Minecraft and Rocket League would link up on PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

State Senate Sends Budget to Governor Walker
The budget was supposed to be done by July 1 but GOP infighting over road funding has delayed the process. Scott Allen, Janel Brandtjen, Bob Gannon, Adam Jarchow and Joe Sanfelippo voted against the budget.

This is unusual because, while Microsoft opened the Xbox platform to cross-platform play previous year beginning with Rocket League, Sony has been resistant to letting PlayStation 4 gamers share an ecosystem with Xbox One.

The company which didn't want to play ball? The fact that this is a big development but yet is unannounced is one thing.

There are also reports of PlayStation 4 players being matched with PC users, although it is unclear if this is meant to be a planned feature or another "configuration error".

Regardless of the answer, it's another sign that PS4 and Xbox One cross-network play could happen right now - if only everyone agreed to it.
